open reel deck looping?

I use a telescoping aluminum arm that has a spare guide from the machine
I am using.  For longer loops I use a microphone stand with a guide
affixed to the top.
Using a replacement guide is easier on the machine and tape and gives
more consistent results.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned it, but one of the easiest ways to
make a
"looping fixture" on an open-reel machine is to simply build a wood face
(probably plywood) around the machine, then use push - pins (y'know, the
ones with the barrel-like upper parts) to extend the tape outwards from the
deck. Least that's how I did it when I was a boy.
